Having fun in school, doing homework together, cooking and eating, playing videogames, watching anime. All those little things make up the daily life of the anime—and chocolate-loving—Izumi Konata and her friends. Sometimes relaxing but more than often simply funny!

I like my heavy story and characters anime but sometimes I need something to cheer me up. And I can't help it these characters make me smile especially Konata and the lucky channel crew. I smiled by most of the jokes even though you have sometimes to be able to relate them. I found the comedy and the art style so entertaining to watch that I didn't notice the absence of the background music. And the opening that sticks in your head. And the story the episodes are episodic(for the most part) and in my opinion it's a good thing.

"This is so BORING!" is what most of you will say if you watch it.
I'll admit, that is what I thought at first, and I stopped watching on the first episode when they were talking about which side is the head of a "chocolate cornet bread"... But after a while, I gave it another try, and this time, I watched patiently and watched through the entire first episode. I was still not impressed, and still bored. I moved on to the next episode, and as you can tell by my over-all rating of a 10, I loved the rest. Now here is why:

Lucky star is one of those unique Comedy anime that comes very rarely. It manages to put a comedic twist to normal everyday occurances, and many pop culutre references. The entire show is not your typical slice of life high school comedy anime, rather its show structure follows more of a western style of comedy, a sitcom to be exact. Instead of having a direct storyline, like most anime viewers are used to, it focuses more of everyday observations and Jpop culture as their source of comedy.

---Theres always a storyline no matter how broad it is. Many ppl say theres no story line read more

There is nothing in entertainment worse than bad comedy.

Bad drama, horror, romance, or action at least has the possibility of being amusing, if only for purely ironical purposes, and watching something which is intended to be serious completely fail can be surprisingly fun (see MST3K). However, watching something try to be funny and fail is hardly ever amusing in the slightest, and amounts, for me at least, to the epitome of nauseating boredom. In the anime world, Lucky Star is perhaps the best (and at the very least the most popular) example of bad comedy ever made.

Now, it is more or less universally agreed upon read more

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
Both series are about the everyday happenings a group of high school girls. They both follow their daily lives with anime humour thrown in. 
reportRecommended by Kraker2k
Anime: K-On!
Both made by Kyoto Animation, graphic styles are similiar
both tells a story about four girls, both are school comedies
reportRecommended by Atanazy
Anime: Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu
They have similar casts and the quirky humor is still there. Both are also slice-of-life (like) anime.

Anime: Acchi Kocchi (TV)
Lucky star + Romance = Acchi Kocchi

Anime: Minami-ke
Slice of life, comedy. Minami-ke is probably better when it comes to comedy since the jokes are too obvious (the comedy in Lucky Star is related to anime and you need to have watched quite a lot to get all those). Oh yea, Lucky Star is much more slice of life than comedy (and vice versa with Minami-ke). In short, i enjoyed Minami-ke a bit more but they are both highly recommended if you are a fan of the genre .
